Orthopedic Surgery

Affinity’s Orthopedic Surgery team uses state-of-the-art surgical methods to treat diseases and injuries related to the bones, muscles, joints, ligaments, nerves and tendons.


The Kennedy Center

Mercy Medical Center is proud of our relationship with the Kennedy Center for the Hip and Knee in Oshkosh, a nationally-recognized program for hip replacement. The Kennedy Center is an independent orthopedic practice serving the Fox Cities, Oshkosh and other parts of Northeast Wisconsin and the Midwest. Among the Kennedy Center’s many areas of specialty are arthritis, arthroscopic surgery, joint replacement, metabolic bone disease, osteoporosis, sports medicine, trauma and fractures.

Best Orthopedic Surgery Team

Because Affinity’s orthopedic surgeons work on the campus of Mercy Medical Center, the number-one-ranked orthopedic hospital in Wisconsin, we have easy access to hospital diagnostic services such as radiology and lab services. A full range of other hospital services, such as emergency services, cancer care and more are also close by if needed.

Minimally Invasive Options

We know you want to return to normal daily activities quickly following surgery. Affinity specializes in minimally-invasive procedures such as arthroscopic surgery to speed your healing process. During arthroscopic surgery, orthopedic surgeons use a slim, flexible instrument—about the size of a pencil—to diagnose and treat problems. Arthroscopes are useful for treating many joint conditions, including rotator cuff injuries, anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears, dislocations and more. Instead of a long hospital stay and large incisions, arthroscopic surgery allows outpatient treatment with minimal pain and quick recovery.
